Joe's workshop challenge, 14 customs.

Posted in Custom Workstation

So I recently acquired a box of 14 Sigma 6 GI Joe's and the 4 wheeler that is scaled to them. I have already started sketching out ideas and planning ways to make entirely new figures or to improve them. So my challenge to myself is to create 14 custom figures from all of them. I want suggestions though as I have no idea what to do with all of them.

Gung Ho - All accessories
Duke - With 4 wheeler and accessories
Arctic Duke - All accessories
Tunnel Rat - I assume all accessories, odd wind up drill gun stuff
Jungle Snake Eyes - Most of his weapons
Shirtless Tattooed Storm Shadow - Most of his weapons
Kamakura - All accessories
Sgt Stone - All accessories
Cobra Flight Bat - All Accessories
Jet Pack Duke - Most of his accessories
Spirit Iron Knife - Not sure which variant, appears to have most accessories
Destro - Rocket launcher and coat, but its DESTRO!
Deep sea Duke - Flippers and harness

First Custom started, Arctic Duke is now Snow Job. There's a little more work to do, I want to make his body suit winter camo.

Mooooooooar! The Snake Eyes the set came with was actually kind of damaged, so I decided to build him a new body... also had to come up with some new accessories for him as he was a bit bare. I actually still had the swords to the one I had to give up in a yard sale years ago. There's also Stone, who's being turned into Old Snake from MGS4, this is going to be a fun one. Then a test shot of the Enclave Power Armor I'm working on, the shoulder dome thing isn't attached yet... but its close to being that time, so much work. Last is Snow Job again, some sealing and touch ups on him. Its almost time to take a shot of the female Sigma Six body I'm making. I don't know who she'll be, but I just want to have at the base for her done.

So that's 5 figures started, one of which is NEEEEARLY finished. I still feel like Snow Job is missing something. Just have to come up with 9 more figure ideas!

Before I make suggestions, are you planning on making them into more Joes?

A little more clean up on Snow Job, I did a wash of red on the hair to fill in some gaps and give it more vibrant color. Also redid the boots and gloves with black accents. I'm debating making his body suit into an arctic camo, but its just in the air. The black accents really make the white pop out more and look more vibrant. I'm going to finish up making the wrist sleeve things soon. After this project is done I'm going to get started on my femme Joe and try to finish up my Power Armor project.
